Turn on Athletics and Win. with
Hope Almost Dead.
Drives Out Three-Bagg-cr in the
Ninth and Paves Way of
Riotous Victory.
Chicago^ Oct. 22.— Nineteen thousand de
lirious *"fanp,** drlvon almost Insane by a
ninth Inning tie, f;iw the Cfcacac* Cubs
"rome i>acli" to-day and win a tenth inninc;
victory In the ajasrtk k«itk> of the world's

score of 4 to 3.
The combat was one to live in history.
There -wasn't a momt-nt in it when a p*^P
«>i-ly interested partisan could -.:raw a calm,
Mi breath. It was anybody's game until
the ■ish. -when a double, an out aT.d a
siarle put the winning run across the plate.
V\> to Chicago's half of the ninth the
score stood 3 to 2 in favor of the visitors.
It looked as if the latter would pertsrai the
reoord-brcakins feat of capturing four
Ftraijrht games in a world's strips and take
the pennant home with them. A number of
3*h;ladt'3nhia visitors went so far as to make
slecpinr car reservations for to-night from
■a sjH«cial agent in the grandstand. As events

or whether the Cubs _!.t Stffl hope to

the smil* broadened to a grin when Hof

Hut the crowd was fairly crazy with cx
cliement. The roar of cheers was < .-r
Fplittinsr when Captain Chance came to bat.
The first ball pitched nipped him on the
linger, hut the umpire said he had arallDsd
Into it and it aervajl him right, or words
to that effect. The "iH>erless leader!*
hnpped about, snapping the injured mem

position, gaartag in the direction of the
Ftill grinning Bender. He stepped into an
other one, but the result was different.
With every rr.uscle in his ansrry body tense
he caught the ball o*n the seam and
flammed it to the furthest corner of the

Archer smovhered a foul, however, and
J'.aker, the first man up, was disposed of.
Captain DavJs rose to the occasion with a
«kan donfale to right, and the looal crowd
felt something in Its throat. "Home Run"
Murphy uas up. but his l*-st was a sharp
grounder, which Tinker fumbled for one
breathless moment and then threw Davis
out at third. Barry ended the rally by
ttrikinij out.
There were two out wnen the winning run

At precisely this moment the heralded t*

occurred. Mr. Mark was plainly surprise.-.,
but he soon recovered, and smiled with vi?

Matty the Man of the Hour in
Royal Baseball Battle.
Ford a Disappointment in Big
Series for the Local
Th? biff series is over and the Olants
hnvp won. For the first time in the his
tory of the American and National !eaj<uos
the question of baseball supremacy in Man
hattan has been settled. The memorable
pitchers' battle between Christy Mathew
■oa and Rnssd! Ford In the first same
i;;-\e an inklinK of what the final result
of the afirtoa would be. When with two
out and the bases filled. In the eighth
inninp, Arthur Devlin rapped a stin>rinp
■ingle to left field, scoring DeVOTO and
Doyle and practically clinching the vic
tory, IfoQraw turned to his old aide part
i>< r, Qughle Jennings, wii<» sat in the press
U.x, and said: "It is just a question oi
class, Bughle; Just a Question of class."
Tboae aravda sutnraed up In a nutshell the
relative merits of the two teams.
For the purpose of review It must be
told once more that the. 'Wants won the
hy four pimts to two, one being ■
tie. The scores ef the games In order were
as follows:
First game, Giants, 5; Yankees, l: sec
ond game, Yankees, 6; <;ia';ts, 4; third
game. Giants, C; Yankees, 4; fourth game,
Giants, •': Yankees, 5: (ten Innings); tifth
game. Giants, 5; f/ankees, 1; sixth game.
Yankees, 10; Giants, 2; seventh game,
Giants, 6; Yankees, 3.
Of the forty-odd players who took part
in the series. Christy Mathewson Stood
head and shoulders above all others. Tho
big pitcher proved, as he had often demon
strated in the past, that he is the greatest
I twlrler thai ever lived. He now stands
on the topmost pinnacle of baseball fame,
without a peer.' While his critics have
watched and waited for the skilful arm to
lose its cunning, and have predicted Is
downfall time and again, yet after ten
years of pitching on the staff o? the New
York Giants be successfully defended his
j title of king of them all, bestowed upon
j him by Frank Chance, of the Chicago Cubs.
| Three times within eight days Matty
faced the Yankees, and three times he
won a clean-cut victory. Coming to tho
rescue of Drucke, he opposed the men from
| the hilltop for the fourth time, and, pitch
': ing Ihree innings, held a lead for the
Giants which the Yankees threatened to
overcome. The one point of absorbing in
terest to all "fans" in the series was the
question whether the crafty Ifatty could
beat Russell Ford, whose rise to fame in
tho American League during the last sea
son had been meteoric and sensational. Tho
batt!>- was fought out in the first game,
and Matty won. On two other occasions
Ford faced the Giants, but was unable to
beat them; and, while his work was brill
iant at times and creditable always, he
showed that he bad no right to dispute
first place with Matty, even if ranked on a
par with Mordecal Brown, Walsh, Bender,
Coombs, Ruckei and other great twirlers.
Matliewson's record during the series was
one which undoubtedly has never been
e< ; i:alled. In tho thirty Innings which he
pitched be struck out thirty-live batsmen
and gave only one base on balls. While he
made, two wild pitches, he did not hit a
single layer. Oniy three pitched balls,
therefore, stood ii t i the way of a record of
perfect control. The most significant fact
revealed by the statistics, however, is the
relation of the number of hits to the runs
scored. The invincibility of "Big Six" with
n;on on the bases gives him hia greatest
i claim to supremacy over all other pitchers.
The figures showed that although Matty
allowed twenty-six hjts. the Yankees made
them unt for only seven runs. No bet
ter evidence of his coolness and masterful
work In tight places could be off' r.
Without Mathewson, it can only be a
matter of speculation whether the Giants
would have won the series. While Ames
and Wiltse showed up poorly, Crandall and
Drucke were effective. On the other hand,
Fisher and Warhop were the only Yankee
irlers who succeeded in pitching a fuil
nine innings, and the Giants defeated both
once. "Big Jim" Vaughn was a disap
pointment, being knocked out of the box
twice. Quinn, who went to the rescue on
two different occasions, succeeded in check
ing the Giants. Hughes was a negligible
quantity in the series, pitching only on<»
inning, while Ford did not come up to ex
pectations, for the reason, perhaps, that
Matty broke his heart in that first brilliant
game, in which the honors of the struggle
were shared for sevpn full innings.
While the pitching of Matty went a long
way towards saving the series for the
Giants it was the all around good hitting
of MeGraw's nine which scorea the runs
that won- the games. In timely hitting and
base running the Giants surpassed the
Yankees, and in those two features the
struggle showed thp form which wins
championship baseball struggles. While
the Yankees were not outbatted by a great
margin it was the timely ami heavy hit
ting which counted.
In team batting averages the Giants
were nearly M points ahead of the Yan
kees, MeGraw's nln< making a mark or
.2^l for the aeries, to 2."> l for the Yankees.
In the number of bits mado the Giants
riir|.asse<l the Yankees by only two, but
they made sixty-two hits go for ninety
bases. while the Yankees hit for only
seventy-five bases with sixty safeties.
Next to Matty, little Josh Devore was
most prominent. His work was nothing
short of a revelation to the "fans," and
gives much promise for the future. lie
had a perfect Beldlng average for the
series, accepting twelve chances without a
Saw, and he led the team in batting with
an average or .414, making twelve hits,
one of which was a home run. His won
derful throws to second base nipped two
or three men who wen trying to stretch
a single into a double. Not alone In bit
ting, but In base running as well, Devore
as a factor In the game. He proved a
demon on the bags, leading both teams
in stolen bases, bt ing credited with six.
Larry Doyle, with a batting average of
.378. Devlin with .576, and Merkle, with .375.
supplemented the work of Devore, and the
four made up a quartet which would
make the greatest pitcher quail. Larry
Doyle was the King of the heavy hitters.
Four of his eleven hits were for extra
bases— a double, a triple and two home,
runs. Doyle ''batted in fc runs and scored
nine times himself, thus answering for IT of
the 33 runs tallied by the Giants. Devlin
tatted in 7 runs, Iferkle 4, and Devore 3.
The Giants stole eighteen bases to
thirteen for the Yankees, Devore, Doyle
and Murray stealing twelve between them.
Sweeney, Miichell and Criger were unable
to keep the fleet-footed Giants on the
bags and, helped along by timely hitting,
the base running counted heavily in the
toll of runs.
Charlie Hemphill and Harry Wolter
snowed unexpected strength in the Yan
kee line-up. The latter replaced Daniels,
after the fast little fielder of the Yankees
bad played in three games and succeeded
In getting to first base only once, his
value as ■ base runner consequently being
negligible. Wolt<r led (both teams In bat
ting, With hii average of .421. Ill* hit
ting, however, was not so timely as that
of SOWM Of the Giants who had lower
averages. ' Wolter batted In only one run
All pitchers looked aliki in Hamphlll, from
Matty down. He played in every game or

their usual excellent same, keeping up
their batting In good form.
The Yankees as a whole played the same
brand >'f ball they have shown all the
season; the Giants rose to the emergency
and played a game which their sup
porters saw only at Infrequent intervals
during the season, but a frame which they
are capable of playing when occasion de
mands. In fielding the Yankees excelled
Ihe Giants, but the luck of the game made
tlvir errors count heavily againsi them
A greater number of total chances brought
their fielding average up eight points above
i th>- Giants, while the errors com
mitted were sixteen for the Giants and
■] f<>r the Yanke< B.t
The brilliant showinp of Devlin, Devore
and Doyle pave the Giants a distinct
advantage. The Yankee Ftars. such as
Chase ami Ford, <H<l not shine with their
usual brilliancy. Merkle and Chase were
separated by only one point in fielding,
while the Giant player outbatted his op
ponent by thirty points and was conse
quently more valuable to his team.
While Doyle ui'l not Held so accurately
as Laporte, Gardner and Roach, his hit
ting and base rnrniiiK made him stand
):c:ml and Fhoulders over the three as an
asset in winning games. Aa a fielder nn<!

latter has the reputation of being the best
pinch hitter in the League an f i he lived up

The mile race. In which Van Den Dries

Players Warned to Look Well
Before They Leap Far.
Plan Suggested for "Angels"
Who "Just Can't Make Their
Money Behave."
As told In Th© Tribune last Tuesday D.
A. Fletcher, backed by "Tex" Rickard and |
Jack Gleason, has declared that he will ;
open permanent offices In this city on No
vember 1 for the purpose of carrying out
his plan to organize a third major league,
and so bring about a baseball war.
This news was not welcome to those who
have the best interests of the sport at
heart, in spite of the fact that few well in
formed ha-seball men accept Fletcher and
his plans sifeusty Frank J. Farr *"*
Arthur Irwin. John T. Brush. Charley Eb
bets and others closely allied to the sport
Be e only ruin ahead for those who make
the venture, but the fact remains that A.
G. Spaldins took the threatened invasion
with enough asrssossMMßi la come out wltn
a strong statement decrying what in his
opinion would mean ■ baseball *"■* th jj
would cost between 52.000.000 and 53.000.000.
One Of Ifec leading players on I team in
this city, who ha?« leen approached by
Fletcher and* offered one of the "liberal
contracts prepared, was outspoken yes
terday in a warning to his fe»»w players
not to swallow the alluring bait dangling
before their eyes. He said:
"Promises are one thing, but before a
player cuts loose from organized baseball
he must consider the future and not the
present. Under the rli.n of the men pro
moting the new enterprise some etghty
playera in the *.«• btg leagues have been
offered contracts at stated salaries for a
period of five Mrs, with a cash bonus for
•jumping* of Wm. The contract con
tains 1., renewal or reserve cla^ise. so that
at Its expiration the player will be a free
, "A coatraC so wwded Is bound to b" at
tractive; but what guarantee has a player
pot if the bubble bursts and the # fans' fall
to support the enterprise? Even with base
ball aa popular as it is. -ome clubs in the
National and American leagues are losing
money, while others are barely making ends
meet- so what could be expected of a new
organization, trying to fight Its way into
the favor of the fickle baseball public? The
players would have their bonus, or pur
chase price, of $10,000. but they would soon
be out of a job and outlawed by the Na
tional Commission, if the new league
proved the failure that it is almost sure to
be The players who are now earning good
money in organized baseball, more than
they could in nine out of ten cases in any
other line, would do well M look sharply
before they leap, or they may flnd th^m
selves scrambling about in a bad mud
It is said that the promoters are innin
to invest some $2,000,000 In the new league
by putting clubs in New York. Pittsburg,
Chicago, Washington, Louisville. Detroit,
PhUadelphla and Boston, but this amount,
big as it is. will not go far toward build-
Ing stands, laying out grounds, paying rent
al and satisfying the players.
James A Hart, a former pre-id-nt of the
Chicago Baseball Club and a shrewd stu
dent of the sport, ha* the following to say
on the subjaei in 'The Chicago Tribune":
It nro'iablv will be set out in the pros
pectus of the proposed third major league
»i..r to make I<> per cent on J-W.iw re
qufres a profit of only &M» per annum
2nd attention will be caUed to .the fact that
Murphy. Comiskey. Shibe. Drejfu-s ana
Brush have made money. B«t wi "
tlon the fact that the*? men I &»*•"_*£
have winning teems in order to mane
mJney- Oi will this new league contain
Then again, how much of the ißvest
m'nt will be charged off for yearly de-
Dreciatlon? You must understand the con
uacts render the playera absolutely rre* at
the end of five year-, hence a per cent
annual depreciation will not be too great.
Now as to operating expense and patron
age A new league must of necessity have
larger expenses than the present clubs, as
Dlaver* will demand Increased salaries, and
why should a new club expect increased
patronage as compared wirh the present.
Baseball is now at its height and has been
made so by good government. The pro
posed plans do not promise good «overn
ment, hence it follows that there Win be
less attractive games and consequent!) de
creased revenue at the gates. Players are
human and will not put forth as great
effort If established financially for nve.
years ahead, as under present conditions.
' But if • there are capitalists -who Just
can't make their money behave" and whose
skins are cracking to take a chance in tne
baseball lottery, why don't they go aoout
it in what would seem to me a more safe
and sane policy that is to say. «*t the
sanction of the National Commission to
come in under the provision and protection
of that bulwark of professional baseball,
the National agreement, which provides
protection for the patron, the player, the
owner, and. above all. for the game Itself.
